Summary

Challenges and opportunities of on farm research are discussed and it is concluded, that transdisciplinary on-farm research requires from all involved parties:
Understanding and willingness to learn from each other
Acceptance, that own field of research is only a part of the whole “on farm picture”
Sound scientific methods as well as technical tools for support (e.g. tablet PCs)
Move from being/expecting “experts” towards “facilitation"
